So I thought I was being totally original. Take two of the best things on the planet, cookies and brownies, and combine them. What a great idea, right? I made these a while back and they turned out great. The next time I was at the store, guess what I saw?
I was so disappointed. But, to be quite honest, my semi-homemade version turned out soooo much better!
Preheat oven to 350.
3/4 c sugar
6 T crisco butter flavored baking sticks
1 T brewed coffee
1 t vanilla
2/3 c flour
1/2 c cocoa
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 c peanut butter chips (optional)
Combine sugar, crisco stick, and coffee. Stir in egg and vanilla. Slowly stir in flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. When mixed thoroughly, stir in peanut butter chips. Spread into 8x8 pan.
1 1/4 c flour
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/2 c crisco baking sticks, melted
1/3 c sugar
1/3 c brown sugar
1/2 t vanilla
1 c chocolate chips
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix in baking sticks, sugars, vanilla and egg. When mixed thoroughly, add chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonful onto brownie batter, making sure to drop evenly around brownies. Slightly press cookie dough into brownie batter. Bake 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Best served hot with a scoop of ice cream on top. Yum!
